My Time Made Easy - Holiday Hop Along!!

 Perfect and EASY Holiday Gift Packaing!!

Hello sweet friends and welcome to the Official Release Party today at My Time Made Easy!  I was so excited to share this next project with you all ... it's right up my 3-D, template, shabby, gift-givin' alley!

Ready, set, here we go ... introducing SLEIGH RIDE!

This ADORABLE template couldn't be any easier to assemble -- a base, two side and decorative pieces ... boom, done!  My base and sides are cut with Vintage Cream cardstock, the decorative sleigh layers are cut with Blush Blossom cardstock, embossed with a holly leaf and berry embossing folder, the leaves are glittered with green glitter and the berries are sugared with Pink Candy Stickles!

The crinkle stuffed inside the sleigh is brown recycled paper towels that I cut into skinny strips and crinkled up -- super adorable and environmentally sound!  The tag is cut using the Occasional Label cut file and stamped with images and sentiments using the Secret Santa and Sugar & Spice acrylic stamps sets ... love them!!!  The adorable little glittered paper candy cane is the new Candy Striper cut file -- I loaded a 8.5 x 11" piece of cardstock with four file images and let my Cricut cut away -- I did a page in Vintage Cream and a page in Blush Blossom, so I ended up with eight candy canes ... I used one here on the tag and have lots of candy canes for future Christmas cards and scrappin' fun!!!

I stuffed the sleigh with lots of holiday goodness -- some vanilla hot cocoa, a candy cane, some pastel mints, biscotti cookies, chocolate stir sticks and a candy cane cookie wrapped in a glassine bag -- the outside of the bag is decorated with a small paper doilie, some Cake Crumbs and Baby Pink Berry Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop and a sweet little bloom!

For the matching card, I used the Creative Card/Envelope #1 cut file along with the Dashing Through The Snow acrylic stamp set -- pure love!!!

What a sweet little gift set -- ready to give away or keep for yourself!!!
